Welcome to Paper Inkspirations!

Hi! My name is Krissy, welcome to my blog. I have been an avid paper-crafter for many years, my addiction started with scrapbooking and has evolved to card-making. It all started when I realized that I had forgotten to buy a card for my nephew's birthday. Looking at my ever-expanding collection of scrapbook supplies, I thought I'd made a card for him. Since then, I've been hooked on card-making and my scrapbooks have been collecting dust. Someday I'll get back to them... I have two beautiful boys and a wonderful & supportive husband and I work at the Preschool at our church. When I'm not spending time with my family or making cards, I enjoy being active in our church. Life is good! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit.

Take time to get inky today....

Desert Islands Crafts Challenge

Hi friends!  I'm excited to have been asked to join the girls over at Desert Island Crafts Challenge.  It's a fun challenge.  Every other week, they post an "itinerary" of 10 items, we all choose at least 3 of those items and make a card.  How fun!  This week, the challenge is sponsored by Simply Betty Stamps, unfortunately I don't own any of her stamps (yet) and didn't have a chance to order any since our family has all had nasty colds this week.  When you get a chance, check out Betty's website, she has some really fun images. 

So, here's the itinerary for this week...
1 Halloween
2 SBS Image

3 Favourite Colour
4 Found Object
5 Candy colours
6 Not Square
7 Stripes
8 Shades of Grey
9 Bats & Spiders
10 The UnDead

I chose to work with items 1,5,6,7,8 and 9 (well, part of 9 - just the spiders).  Here's my card...

recipe:  Stampendous Hang Out Spider;  Recollections Jewel Paper Pack; Bella Blvd Too Cute to Spook Quadrants, Itsy Bitsy Spider; Tsukineko Tuxedo Black; Prismacolor Pencils, Goo Gone, Tortillons; Darice Hemp Cord; Glitter embossing powder; MAMBI Bling

Head over to the Desert Island Craft Challenge blog for more info and to see what everyone else has created!

Thanks to the DICC girls for letting me play along....I'm looking forward to the next itinerary!  Don't forget to check out the Stampendous blog today for the latest posts for the CAS challenge.  The Stampendous girls WOW me every week! 
 Ok, I'm outta here!  Hope everyone has a great day and that you'll take time to get inky today!

Really cute card. Great way to play the challenge with them. Since you're so sick, I'm assuming the #10 is you! Hope you feel better.
